"Manos" The Hands of Fate (1966) (part 7 of 7)
Meanwhile, First Wife and the Master are still pointlessly bickering. First Wife tells him that “the gods will destroy you!” (Okay, I give up trying to follow this movie’s screwy theology) and the Master lets out another Boisterous Evil Laugh™. Dude, it wasn’t that funny. Then he starts smacking First Wife again, and again, and again. (Did you know this movie was originally intended to be an ABC Afterschool Special about domestic violence? I swear I read that on a webpage somewhere.) The Master then insists that he can’t be destroyed, because “Manos has made me permanent!” Whatever the hell that means. First Wife, with her face now covered in fake blood, tells the Master that his power has failed him, and as evidence, she cites the fact that even Torgo defied him. The Master points out what a stupid assertion this is, given that he killed Torgo and everything.
